2nd-10th December, Bull Mill Arts Christmas
There's no way of putting this gently. CHRISTMAS IS
COMING! I know, I know, sorry about that. Unless you're under 16 (or me) you're probably not too thrilled to hear this. However, maybe
it's partly the burden of Christmas shopping that gives Christmas a bad name, and there I can empathise. How many items that we buy now
will end up in January's charity bag or consigned to the back of a shelf.
With so many pointless items purchased, I'm thinking less is more. Something unique, something no one else will have, hand made... Here
I can help you, in 4 words 'BULL MILL ARTS BAZAAR'! Not just wall art but wearable art in the form of handmade knitwear, useful art in
the form of hand thrown ceramics. I could go on, I probably will... Woodturning to rugs and of course, paintings, jewellery,
candles and more! All conveniently situated at the lovely Bull Mill 2-10 December 10am-4.30pm.
Ok, if we can get me off the C word for a moment, I may
even be able to tell you what I've been up to! Runes! You probably have come to realise I'm just a little in love with all things
Norse. Now as a lot of my paintings are inspired by Norse mythology, I'm taking it one step further and including verses form the Norse
sagas translated into runic and hand burned into the piece, as on Huginn and Muninn above. Obviously just the translation takes a time
before even thinking of hand-burning them, and then the painting. So, so far I just have this one piece, but watch this
Nicks and my exhibition continues at Blackswan Frome
11November - 3 December Mon-Sat 10-4! As does the John Leach Pottery Chrisrmas exhibition.

Last time I will mention Christmas, promise, but if you
are still at a loss for a gift, then do consider Nick's Cart Shed gift vouchers nick andrew.co.uk/teaching . Really
great for people who have enough 'things' and would like to explore the art world from a rural studio with a wood burner and
professional artist on tap! Excellent value for money and many happy students to testify!

So, Finally, thank you to everyone that has visited Nick
and I over the year, for your support and encouragement and for reading my overly enthusiastic monthly gobledegook.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS to you all!
